"Being a part of research teams has been the most rewarding aspect of my academic career. As I continue to be a part of this process I encounter new areas that I find both important and interesting. Through interactions with undergraduate students, as well as my own personal experience, I realized how much clarity is lacking in the understanding of how graduate applications are reviewed. Receiving the Thelma Hunt research grant is extremely important to exploring this area and being able to provide direction for future applicants who are facing important decisions about where their time and activities would be best spent in order to pursue the education that they desire. This grant allows me to further delve into an area of research that I find extremely interesting."
